When Donald Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, he promised to “drain the swamp!” along with a lot of other promises he never made good on. The wall that he was going to build at the southern border is now just some repaired fence sections. The check that Mexico was going to be send is actually just tariffs and a trade deal (which don’t work the same way). And instead of draining the swamp, Trump now just wants to move it to Texas.
Speaking to reporters during a brief presser on Thursday, Donald Trump said that what happened to the NRA – the “nonprofit” agency is being hit hard in court for numerous violations – is “terrible.”
‘That’s a very terrible thing that just happened. I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life. I’ve told them that for a long time. I think they should move to Texas. Texas would be a great place. Or to another state of their choosing.’
While it is absolutely insane that anyone would have to explain to a sitting president of the United States that criminals can’t just pick up and move to avoid legal accountability, here we are. New York Attorney General Letitia James told Trump on Twitter that:
‘To be clear, no charity registered in NYS, including the @NRA, can dissolve and relocate to another state without the approval of my office or of the Supreme Court of NY. As long as our lawsuit continues, the NRA must stay right where it is & answer for their deep-rooted fraud.’
Twitter was delighted by the news. Read some of their comments below:
